“We started this company with the mission to provide organizations and their supporters with a free and powerful fundraising tool,” said Frank Molnar, managing partner at Buy4.com. “We’ve helped more than 200 nonprofits, schools and associations to date – causes such as Autism Speaks, the United Nations Foundation, Give Kids the World and even the American Red Cross supporting those affected by Superstorm Sandy. With an estimated 150 million people shopping online and a Cyber Monday program like this, we’re eager to watch this grow and see how each cause is making a difference in people’s lives.”
